During recent years motor boating has gi'own apace, so that hundreds of boats are now seen where twenty years ago power driven craft were novelties. The fleet of good old wind-jammers has also grown, many of which are now equipped with engines, making it possible for the man with limited time to enjoy the sport with assurance of getting home regardless of wind. With this growth, numerous magazines have been published in the interest of the sport and these, being educational in character, have removed much of the mystery previously supposed to surrovmd boat building. As a result amateur building has become popular, and many creditable boats are turned out.
